Aeromaster's Marauding Mitchells Part 2 Decals
are available online from


Aeromasterís new release of Marauding Mitchells part 2 48-684 is printed to the usual high standard that we come to expect from Aeromaster. The sheet is a great follow on from Marauding Mitchells part 1. The decals are in perfect register and sharply printed. The carrier film is very thin and should disappear under a coating of clear finish.
The artwork for the nose art has been well defined with the nose art for the two aircraft being provided as an outline and a template provided on the instruction sheet to mask up and paint the solid base colour. The colour reference sheet provided is excellent giving good colour reference and decal placement.
Markings are provided for two aircraft:
  • A B-25J-1 of the 498th Bomb Squadron, 345th Bomb Group based in the Philippines in 1945. The aircraft is finished in Olive Drab over Neutral Gray with yellow cowling lips and a yellow and green parrots head on the nose.

  • Hellís Belles a B-25D-1 of the 499th Bomb Squadron 345th Bomb Group based in the Port Moresby in November 1943. The colours are olive drab over Neutral Gray with with medium green splotching on the upper wing surface. Medium Blue nose art and engine cowl lips.

Highly Recommended
